The spacious room.houses dolls from various states of India and countries and tribes around the world.Guides are available to help visitors, though there isn't really a need. Information displayed is interesting to read and... More

Very small, just a big hall filled with dolls across the globe, the demographics display above each was a good source of knowledge. Half an hour is more than enough and it is tough to find.

Went searching for the place base on reviews. At the gate the watch man did not know that the complex houses the museum. The sign board displayed timmings but the place was locked and it would appear that it had not been opened or visited ever. Avoid , avoid and avoid
